The Academy of Global Health aims to increase knowledge and awareness of global health issues; to provide specialized knowledge, skills and mentorship to residents with career interests in global child health and health equity; and to provide high-quality opportunities for meaningful international global health experiences. The academy brings together residents, fellows and faculty with a global health focus at Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center, who work in partnership with global colleagues on research, policy and health service delivery to further child health equity.
